Intersections: Report on Girls (2016)

October 22, 2016 by Bill Ivey
Recently, a CBS photo-essay entitled “Top 35 countries to be a girl” shared information from a report released by Save the Children on this year’s International Day of the Girl. The top 15 were all from Europe, with Sweden, Finland, and Norway leading the way; the Europeans claimed 24 of the top 35 spots. New Zealand was the top non-European country (16th), Israel the top Asian country (17th), Canada the top North American country (19th), and Algeria the top African country (31st). No South American countries made the list. The United States did squeak into the top 35, following Algeria at 32nd. (CBS)
